Open Learning

What are the ethics of our participatory methodologies? How might culture affect politics and what is the role of the gallery in politically fraught times? Our ‘Who Are We? Project’ is an experimental research program consisting of talks, installations, site-specific work, live art, learning labs, screenings, workshops and seminars. It aims at developing a dialogue toward a more equal exchange between academics, artists, audiences, and art institutions. All the while interrogating who we are and what it means to belong.
